Presentation

The Arche Scaligere (Della Scala family?s tombs) monumental funerary complex is among the most spectacular and striking monuments in the city, and contains the remains of the most illustrious Lords of Verona. A few sarcophaguses are placed on the ground or on raised levels, hemmed in a richly decorated wrought-iron enclosure where a ladder (the Scaligeri family?s symbol) stands out as a recurring decorative motif. Three monumental marble canopy tombs are especially remarkable: Cangrande I?s, Mastino II?s and Cansignorio?s, elaborately adorned with decorations accomplished by numerous artists.
